Dan Malone says Trey Dudley-Giles continues to impress on special teams. Trey has gone 7-248 35.4 AVE 77 LONG. If he keeps up this pace, Trey will shatter Dennis Dent's 1978 single season average of 28.31.

Trey Dudley-Giles isn't the only UMass player doing well. Jovan Santos-Knox is leading the nation in tackles. Through 3 games he has 42 total tackles. A projected 186 TT over 12 games would blow away the UMass single season record of 140.5 bay Kole Ayi in 1998. Joe Colton's 34 tackles would place him third in Minutemen single season TT's. He'd be .5 TT behind Khari Samuel's 136.5 in 1998.

FYI, Blake Frohnapfel, through three games has 117.8 EFF 619 yards and a 206.3 yards/game. Last year A.J. Doyle and Mike Wegzyn had EFF ratings of 99.1 and 94.6 respectively. Doyle averaged 115.8 yards per game and Wegzyn 60.3.

Another hit and run on UMASS football. This time WBZ TV. Why say only 10,000 attended against Colorado, ignoring over 30k went the week before. Let's do an expose on the free ride catholic schools get, paying no taxes, while making big bucks in the ACC. Nah, too many at this station were either cheerleaders there or get free passes for games for their families.
Stick to covering the weather and reporting how great the red sox, and patriots are. Try beating up Belichuk, nah it's easier beating about UMASS 100 miles away.
